Busy Flagship Hospital in the South Looking to Hire General Neurosurgeon to Join Current Team of Two

A Neuroscience and Spine Center in the South is looking to hire a general neurosurgeon to join their current team of two neurosurgeons. The new hire will join the team and work with the existing neurosurgeons as well as seven Neurologists, and two Neuro-psychologists. This is a great opportunity to join an established practice at a non-trauma designated hospital. Call will be 1 in 3 and is not burdensome as most calls are handled over the phone and surgeons don’t go in very often. The practice is open to hiring a NP to take first call. This will eventually be a four- person group so the plan is to hire two. There is documented outmigration that can be captured.

The senior neurosurgeon is planning to retire in the next five years and will be coming off the call schedule this summer. The hospital will continue to supplement with locums to keep the call schedule at 1 in 3 until they are fully staffed. This is an employed position admitting to the system's flagship hospital. The catchment area is over 550,000 and the hospital will help support the new partner. This will be a general neurosurgery position and no pediatric coverage is required. Referrals are strong from employed neurologists as well as community primary care physicians. There is no local competition from orthopedic spine surgeons.
